Kurrajong’s multi-purpose facility built in Narrandera East officially opens on 23 February 2023.
Construction has completed on Kurrajong’s Narrandera East St facility, which will be used to support the increased need for the organisation’s lifestyle choices programs, supported living, therapy plus and support co-ordination, as well as first contact services.
Kurrajong Outreach Services manager Deanne Bolesta said “that this fantastic building has been fully funded by Kurrajong and the clients, families & staff would like to thank the Kurrajong Board for their strong commitment to this project in Narrandera”.
The multipurpose building provides a modern environment to support Kurrajong’s lifestyle choices services and includes a spacious kitchen designed for group cooking programs and specific spaces for living skill training and activities. The new building also provides an office base to co-ordinate the supported living accommodation supports currently provided in the community and various evening social and leisure groups.
The facility includes a large woodwork workshop, music room and outdoor area for physical activities.
It will also provide a base for Kurrajong therapists, including occupational and speech pathologists to provide services directly from the new building.
“The new building was designed around the specific requirements of the existing supports provided to the people of Narrandera and surrounding towns and everyone has been eagerly awaiting the completion of the project” Ms Bolesta said.
Families that utilise Kurrajong’s support co-ordination services will have a local office so they can visit to receive face-to-face support to navigate the NDIS and support to manage individual plans.
“It is a very exciting project and a great asset for the community,” Ms Bolesta said.
